"outfront" next, shocking announcement out of the vatican today. plus a power struggle in the republican party. in the end, who will be the voice of the gop?
somebody might die in this fight. will rubio win or somebody like rand? >> and ted nugent has been invited to attend tomorrow's state of the union address. we have a preview of what he might say in a special report. let's go "outfront." good evening. everyone. i'm erin burnett. toght, the fourth most powerful man in the world resigns. pope benedict xvi surprised many of his 1.2 billion fall ors worldwide when he said he was going to step down at the end of the month, and the reason, his age. nearly one in four americans identifies as catholic. according to the church, the catholic population worldwide has about 15 million members in 2010. the latest year for which there was data. about 17% of the planet is catholic. now, a church is believed to be
the third largest landowner in the world, so it's hard to estimate what the church owns and what it's worth. economists estimate annual spending just by the united states by the catholic church and its entities was about $170 billion in one year, 2010. sister simone campbell is the executive director of the national catholic justice lobby. brian finny worked for opus dei. scary guys. let me start with you, sister simone. i wart to start with a serious issue. $3.3 billion has been paid out by the church in the past 15 years to settle rape and molestation charges of boys against priests. pope benedict has been accused of failing to act by some. the executive director of the survivors netwaork of those abused by priests spoke. he said, quote, when forced to, he talked about the crimes but ignores the cover-ups.
uses the past tense as to suggest it's not still happening. he has vast powers and he's done very little to make a difference. is that true? >> i don't know exactly what the pope has done to atone for what's happened. i do know that this has been a scandal in our church, but worst of all, it has been -- caused serious harm to children for many years. and that we as a church need to atone for that. paying money is one thing, but we all know that doesn't make up or atone for the sin of these crimes against children. we have a lot still to do. we need leadership that will engage that issue. >> and do you think, brian, that the next pope needs to be act sk on this? there are still cases now in this country where there are priests who abuse children and there were people, perhaps, at the highest level of the vatican, who covered up for that. >> i think the next pope absolutely needs to be sensitive to this, but he also needs to be recognized that pope benedict was the first pope to meet with
victims of sex abuse. he was a pope who pushed through new procedures so the church would be sensitive to the needs of victims. so i think a tremendous amount has been done, and the church will continue to try to be sensitive to the needs of victims. >> all right, i want to ask about a couple of other issues and i want to start the issue of home sexualty and same sex marriage. here, 1 in 4 americans identify themselves as catholic, and in catholics in the united states of america, 54% of them support gay marriage. clearly, the will of the catholic people in the united states is in favor of gay marriage, not the church. isn't it time for the church, which is supposed to be an inclusive, generous. giving organization, to move ahead on gay rights? >> the reality is almost every single time, there has been one case in which gay marriage was put to the voters and the voters actually supported gay marriage. when people are educated on the issue and have a chance to reflect on it, people will vote against it. part of the --
>> you think in the united states, the tide is going to turn back and people are going to go against gay marriage? >> i can't prognosticate for the future, but what i do know as a catholic and what i believe as a human being is it's good for a child to be able to experience the love of both a mother and a father. and the love of a mother and a father is irreplaceable. and also, if we start tinkering with marriage, i think we're going off in very dangerous directions. so i would think we should be very cautious in doing that. >> even if they love each other, isn't the catholic church supposed to be about love? >> yes, the catholic church is about love, and the catholic church is about telling all of us that we should love in a genuine way and a way which is good for the other human being and a way which is good for families. what the catholic church is saying is that this indeed in the end is not good for families, is not good for society. but at the same time, it is -- the catholic church does recognize that gays have inherent human dignity.
>> it's hard to say they have inherent human dignity and then say they can't be part of your church. sister simone, why don't you jump in? is this going to be a deal breaker? >> i would love to jump in. i think the challenge is our church looks adit frauz the hierarchy's perspective, but we live in a plurallistic world, and we know that jesus said go, teach all, and love is the measure for all we love all, and it's that welcoming embrace that we need as a church, not censure and judging each other. jesuss do not judge, so i urge our leaders to be as christ was, the welcoming part of faith, and that's where we need to move. not in judging and creating lines that divide and separate. that's wrong. >> and brian, are you willing to lose people over this issue? i was raised catholic. a lot of people i know were, and most of them are no longer
practici practicing. some have to do with women's rights, but a lot has to do with the stance on gay marriage. >> if the church embraces the spirit of the times, are the churches that are losing numbers. and so what the catholic church needs to do, the catholic church needs to say, christ calls you to love. to love him, you have to love all of humanity. and it calls you -- part of that is conversion as well. with respect to homosexuality, the church is saying there are forms of behavior that are not constructive, but we love you and we can work with you. that's what the church is trying to say. >> i want to move on quickly before we go to one other issue, sister simone, the issue of women. why a lot of people have been frustrated with this church in this country that have abandoned it. can there ever be a change. you're sister simone. what about having a priest that was a woman? what about the symbol that that
would send to little girls? >> i actually grew up as a young girl and played mass with my sister, and i didn't realize as a girl that i couldn't do it. so i have a long history of thinking we are leaders within our church. i do think that there's room for reconsidering this issue. when you look at the artifacts and the early writings, women were deacons in the early church. women provided leadership. women celebrated sacraments with the people. so i think we can return to our early roots as opposed to the middle ages where there was more of an emphasis on the patriarchy. if we recovered our real heritage, women would once again be in their rightful place. >> thank you, and before we go, in a word, women priests? back before the middle ages, women had more rights. >> they have to follow the rites of only having women -- we have
to be faithful to christ. >> thank you very much. please share your point of view with us. obviously, two very different points of view tonight. >> sotill to come, some say there's rar civil war in the republican party. who will call the shots for the gop or will it splinter into oblivion. >> plus, the girl murdered in chicago. why is it taking so long to find her killer? >> and joe paterno's family calls a investigation into the pen state child six scandal wrong and flawed. joe paterno's son comes "outfront" to explain why. [ female announcer ] going to sleep may be easy, but when you wake up in the middle of the night it can be frustrating. it's hard to turn off and go back to sleep. intermezzo is the first and only prescription sleep aid approved for use as needed in the middle of the night when you can't get back to sleep. it's an effective sleep medicine you don't take before bedtime.
take it in bed only when you need it and have at least four hours left for sleep. do not take intermezzo if you have had an allergic reaction to drugs containing zolpidem, such as ambien. allergic reactions such as shortness of breath or swelling of your tongue or throat may occur and may be fatal. intermezzo should not be taken if you have taken another sleep medicine at bedtime or in the middle of the night or drank alcohol that day. do not drive or operate machinery until at least 4 hours after taking intermezzo and you're fully awake. driving, eating, or engaging in other activities while not fully awake without remembering the event the next day have been reported. abnormal behaviors may include aggressiveness, agitation, hallucinations, or confusion. alcohol or taking other medicines that make you sleepy may increase these risks. in depressed patients, worsening of depression, including risk of suicide, may occur. intermezzo, like most sleep medicines, has some risk of dependency. common side effects are headache, nausea, and fatigue.

of saying what is happening recently. bob mcdonnell, great to see you. really appreciate your taking the time. >> thank, erin. >> it has been pretty interesting watching the republican party recently. a little bit like watching, perhaps, a pay-per-view wrestling match. rand paul and marco rubio, two rebuttals to the president from one party. is that a good or bad thing for the party? >> we're not a monolithic party. we have a diversity of opinions just like they do in the democratic party. the president is in the more liberal wing, and there are moderates who disagree with him on things. listen, we have work to do, after losing a presidential election two cycles in a row, to a president that had a $16 trillion debt and an 8% unemployment rate, that's not good, so there are different views on how to get us back on tract. the good news is we control a good majority of the state legislatures and 30 out of the 50 governors are republicans.
we have been gaining for the last four years. so i think we're winning in some areas. at the national level, we clearly have work to do. >> all right, and look, i have to give you credit. you came out, 30 of 50 governors. let me ask you, because of the talk about the civil war, the donald trump tweet about karl rove, here is what donald trump tweeted. coral rove's strategy and commercials were the worst i have ever seen. karl rove is a total lezer. money given to him might as well be thrown down the drain. other tea parties have criticized rove and said he's too moderate which has left me scratching my led because he used to be considered the bullwort of the republican party. who is the real republican? donald trump or karl rove, if you had to choose? >> i know both of them. they're all good republicans. we have good disagreements, just like the other side. when you lose after a presidential race, there's always this soul searching.
i think it's healthy. what is our message? how are we going to appeal to those young voters and new voters and minority voters that we lost in big numbers this time? how are we going to change our tone? so that we are more effective messengers. and i think marco rubio is going to do a great job tomorrow night explaining the republican message to a broader audience. look, this is just part of the process. i'm not that worried about it. i don't call it a civil war. it's a disagreement in the family. and we'll be a stronger republican party going forward. >> do you think, though, when you look at, let's say chris christie. could he actually get a nomination in the republican party given that he comes from a state that has some of the most restrictive, second most restrictive gun law in the country, that he is considered to be open-minded on things like gay marriage? he calls himself a republican, but it seems like looking at a republican primary, he would look like a flaming democrat. >> chris is a friend of mine. he's a darn good governor.
he's got a 70-something percent approval rating in a blue state. i think people want results and not talk. plenty of rhetoric and talk and blame shifting in washington, and governors know how to get something done, so the answer is yes. we want to elect people and nominate people who are prince pale conservative but can win. i think you'll see more of that going forward. governors are good ones to lead the way. >> marco rubo, you have been talkied about as a can candidat for 2016, marco rubio seemed like a good choice. you want to talk about immigration. you want to put out someone who is diverse. do you need rubio to be the nominee for the republican party to not become what the left-leaning new republic has just called the gop as the party of white people? >> well, i mean, that's grossly unfair.
both parties have -- we're a majority white country. we're becoming more diverse. and i think that's a great thing. and our challenge is to be able to say why this conservative republican message gets results, why conservatism works and liberalism fails and why for the average person in america, why it produces things that are better for your family on taxes, on spending, education, on dent and deficit. this president has run into $16 trillion in debt, heading to $17 trillion, and a job rate that is abysmal. the president has to explain how he's going to turn that around. marco rube yio is a great guy t explain why that message is going to work. >> thank you. >> a girl who performed add the president mfs inauguration was gunned down in chicago. we have the latest developments in the hunt for her killer. >> plus, ted nugent invited to attend the state of the union address. he's going to be there tomorrow night. when we were at his ranch, he had this message for the president. >> these are all legal guns and

our third story "outfront," murder city.
so chicago saw more than 500 homicides last year. that topped new york city, choo has three times the population of chicago, but it's the killing of a teen-aged girl, an innocent bystander, which has brought new focus to the city. hadiya pendleton who was performing in the president's inauguration parade, was then gunned down on chicago's south side two weeks ago. her parents will be the obamas' guest at the state of the union address tomorrow night. "outfront" tonight, ted rowlands. what is the latest in the search for her killer? >> well, erin, two people are in custody. they're being called persons of interest at this point, but we are expekting an update at some point in this investigation from chicago police. the bottom line, in this case like many murders in this city, it's been very difficult to make a arrest because people are so reluctant to tell police what they know. >> hi, my name is hadiya.
>> the murder of 15-year-old honor student hadiya pendleton is a case that people in chicago want solved. the high school sophomore who had just returned from performing as a majorette at the presidential inauguration was killed in this park after finish agfinal exam, but getting witnesses to help make an arrest has been difficult. >> people are rightfully concernconcern ed about their participation as witnesses in this case or in any other case that volves a murder. >> chicago police say attacks against witnesses are actually rare, but people still believe they're in danger. >> i have to love mere and my family loves here, so it would be a problem with me telling. >> because what could happen sdm. >> because they would kill people. it's that dangerous out here. >> it is dangerous to do it. because you don't know who is watching and who knows you and what they're capable of doing. >> what could they do to you?
>> they could shoot you or kill you. >> that's exactly what they did last april to 26-year-old kimberly harris, shot 20 times, three times in the face, just days before she was to testify against a gang member accused of killing her boyfriend. there were arrests in fewer than 40% of the 506 homicides in chicago last year, in many cases police simply couldn't get witnesses to tell them what happened. >> if we don't have those witnesses, when we go to trial, how are we ever going to win our case? how are we ever going to hold that person responsible? >> and the community to not be afraid to name them, to out them, to thurn them in. >> father michael phleger has been preaching at st. sabina catholic church on chicago's south side for almost 30 years. >> we have to start reframing the way everything is talked about. you're going to be threatened. no, most likely you're not. you're a snitch. no, you're saving somebody else's life. >> it's already too late to save this life, one that had so much
promise and was cut way too short. >> ted, of course, chicago, the president's, you know, his home town. he's going to be coming there on friday. he has been criticized by some for ignoring the vileants in chicago. what do people hope he's going to do on friday? >> i think specifically in the short term, erin, they're hoping he'll just extend the dialogue which was started by hadiya pendleton's death. her death has struck a never rv this city like none other, at least for years. there's a real feel that people have had enough and there has to be something done. they hope the president coming here will continue that dialogue and there will be some resolve. >> ted, thank you very much. reporting from chicago tonight. still to come, the head of the lapd makes a surprising move, responding to christopher dorner's claims of racism meanwhile, dorner is still being hunted down. >> plus, the attorney for a man
in the penn state rape investigation called it self-serving. all right that's a fifth-floor problem... ok. not in my house! ha ha ha! ha ha ha! no no no! not today! ha ha ha! ha ha ha! jimmy how happy are folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico? happier than dikembe mutumbo blocking a shot. get happy. get geico.
fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more.
welcome back to the second half of "outfront." we start with stories we care about where we focus on reporting from the front lines. we begin with benj nn netanyahu who said today that iran is getting closer to the infamous red line that you might recall he drew so bodily at the u.n. summit last winter. he said iran is, quote, shortening the time needed to draw it. netanyahu is likely referring to iran's recent announcement that it intends to install advanced centrifuge machines at its enrichment facility. he said those machines are a lot more productive than the machines used now. >> a memorial was held for chris kyle who was shot by a fellow veteran he was trying to help. thousands attended the service at cowboy stadium for the man who called himself america's most lethal sniper. there were musical performances and tributes to kyle. the most emotional, though, came
from his wife. she told the audience her husband was a warrior on and off the battlefield. >> nose gearing up for spring break, watch out. shark attacks are at a decade high in the united states. there were 53 shark attacks in the united states last year. that's the most since 2000. 26 occurred in florida. they tell us the uptick has to do with the human population, with so many people frequented the beaches, there are naturally going to be more attacks. >> it's been 557 days since the u.s. lost its top credit rating. what are we doing to get it back? jobs are key to the economic recovery. they said we have been making progress but warned a prosperous job market is going to take years to come. >> and now the paternos fighting back. a new report commissioned by the family called an investigation into the penn state sex scandal factually wrong, speculative and
fundamentally wrong. they hired three experts to rebut the penn state report that claimed that paterno and three other officials famed to protect children from being abused by former coach jerry sandusky. hout front is jay paterno, and dick thornburg, one of three experts hired by the paterno family. great to see both of you, and good to see you, jay. thank you so much for coming in. you have put a lot of time into this report. you feel that your father was wronged. this has become a cause for you. >> well, the report had a couple aims. one was to get to the ruth. and i think that's more important than anything. and a second thing is if we could also create some heightened level of awareness about nice guy predators. we felt that would be -- probably more important than anything. so had it really two things we were going after. >> now, nice guy predators, you're referring to people who may walk among us and we just have no idea. right? >> yeah, when i read jim clemente's report, i'm a father
of five. and there were some things that really jumped out at me because if you would have asked me 18 months ago, what does a predator look like, i would have said the guy in the van cruising playground parking lots and school ground parking lots looking for kids, and that's not the case with nice guy predators. these guys are coaches, scout leaders, they're in your communities. >> i want to ask both of you about things, give you a chance to respond in the louis freeh report. he said, and i want to quote him here from the report. mr. paterno was aware of the criminal 1998 investigation into sandusky's suspected child abuse. indeed, the evident shows that mr. paterno closely followed that case. later, in 2001, another one of his assistance, mike mcqueary, directly reported to mr. paterno that sandusky was sexually abusing a young boy in the locker room. the evidence shows that mr. paterno purposefully ignored the evidence. when you say walks among us, if
you father knew in 1998, how does that add up? >> there is no evidence he did know in 1998. in fact, there are several men who testified under oath he was not told. as governor thornburg's report, it also states that the pennsylvania law at the time had a very high level of confidentiality as it related to investigations and job sexual abuse, so that fact has not been established. in fact, there's a preponderance of the evidence that he waz not aware. >> let me ask you this, louis freeh said there was an active attempt to conceal jerry sandusky's behavior. in 2001, the incident with mike mckwheery. louis freeh cites this exchange, an emil that was apparently between graham spanier and gary schultz and tim curlily. he said after giving it more thought and talking it over with joe yesterday, i am uncomfortable with what we
agreed were the next steps. i am having trouble with going to everyone, but the person involved. if he is cooperative, we would work with him to handle informing the organization. i would indicate that we feel there is a problem and we want to assist the individual get professional help. you're saying that e-mail doesn't add to to sufficient evidence that joe conspired to clear up the evidence. some say after speaking to joe, they decided to back off. >> let me say two things. first of all, the accusation that mr. paterno tried to conceal anything that happened in 2001 is palpably false because he was the one who reported it to the sdagz and the people who had a responsibility for looking after those things. secondly, they have a difficult time distinguishing between y and we. if you read the e-mail carefully, you can see the things that are referred to as collective action and those as singular. it's a little bit technical,
i'll admit, but when you have so little in the way of evidence available, you have to look at it carefully and come to the conclusion we did in the report. >> let me ask you, jay, about this, another thing said in the freeh record interesting in the fact that it was just talking about the spirit of what happened. it said these men exhibited a striking lack of empathy for sandusky's victims by failing to inquire about their well being, especially by not even attempting to determine the identity of the child. do you have moments where you think about that and say, dad, were you thinking by not pushing it? >> you have to understand the time table. mike witnesses something on a friday. he talked to joe on a saturday. the most likely place this child would have come from was second mile, and tim curly went to the second mile, reported to the head of the second mile. he did attempt to find out who that child was. whether louis freeh thinks they should have gotten cars and driven around town, i don't know.
you would have to ask him, but they did try to ascertain who it was. >> erin, one of the lessons we should learn from this is a negative lesson. not everybody should try to become a detective or a law enforcement official trying to uncover these things. there are experts who specialize in these areas. jim clemente, of course, is the best there is. and when you -- and joe mentioned this in his observations, that he didn't want to upset what the professionals might do by mucking around as an amateur. i think tats a very important lesson to carry away. >> jay, i want to play, you and your mother sat down with katie couric. i wanted to play something your mother said today and give you a chance to respond to it. here see she is. >> let me ask you this, katie. adopted children, the experts, he had foster children. the experts vetted him. the executive director of second mile is a child psychologist.
if the experts don't know, how can we know? >> i mean, she has a fair point, but when mike mcqueary comes and tells your dad he saw what he saw, do you think he would have done it differently? >> knowing what we know now about jerry sandusky, and we have to be very careful when you judge think things in historical perspective. at the time mike went to joe, what he told him was not very specific, by mike's own admission, and what we knew about jerry sandusky at the time was this guy was a pillar of the community. he had started a charity that really helps thousands of kids. everything would point you away from believing that. when you read jim clemente's report, part of the psychology of this is nice guy predators do everything they can to turn you away from their actions and fool you. so yeah, there were a lot of people fooled. i worked with jerry sandusky for five years, i have known him my whole life. gr did you hear any of those
allegations? >> i'm one of those people who were fooled. reading that report now, if anything, people should read those reports as parents, as investigators. >> thank you very much. i hope people will read it. thank you very much. now to our fourth story "outfront." charged with murder. today, authorities in california formally charged christopher dorner with the murder of a police officer and the attempted murder of three other officers. dorner is the former lapd officer who please say has been on the run since last week. there's now a $1 million reward for information leading to his capture. but it appears the trail has gone cold after his pickup truck was found last thursday engulfed in flames near the resort community of big bear lake. he said his revenge of the law enforcement is due to his firing in 2008, and now the lapd is looking into the firing and his charges of racism. kyung lah is out front with the story. >> it's the front page.
>> front page. >> compton, los angeles, long beach, and inglewood. >> this is not murder, this is war. >> it debate rages on l.a. radio. christopher dorner, cop killer or vigilante hero? >> i believe what he is doing is really no different than our ancestors would have done and did do in fighting to get free. >> not that people don't have a right to be angry. it's what you do about the angry. >> it's awful that we have to buy into that as another african-american. >> online, a more bold following, with numerous facebook fan pages, one even called a christopher dorner appreciation society. where does this come from? l.a.'s old wounds, as acknowledged by l.a.'s police chief as he reopened the investigation into dorner's firing. >> i hear the ghosts of the past of the los angeles police department. i hear people saying maybe there is something to what he says. i want to put that to rest. if there is anything to what we
says or anything new he brings up in his manifesto, we will deal with it and deal with it in a public history. 1965, the riots triggered by the stop of a black man by white police officers. 1991, the brutal beating of rodney king. the april acquittal of an all-white jury of all of the officers of assault spurned days of riots in los angeles, and in the late '90s, the rampart scandal. the u.s. department of justice came in to reform the entire police department. >> lapd's relationship with the black community could only be described as a state of war. >> this woman sued the lapd representing hundreds of minority officers and helped change the department. today, minorities make up more than half of lapd's force and it has a new mindset.
>> what do you think of the chief reopening the investigation? >> i think it was a tough decision made for the exact right reasons. the openly racist culture of lapd of 30 years ago is gone. >> rice is now the police chief's trusted adviser. she says dorner's beef with the lapd may well be real. but he remains a suspected killer. >> let's not merge the path with cadets. and let's separate out the possibility that mr. dorner has raised legitimate issues from the complete illegitimacy and obscenity of what he's done. >> the police chief says the reopening of the dorner firing investigation isn't to appease the fugitive but a way to continue to close wounds and take another step away from its painful past. kyung lah, cnn, los angeles. >> "outfront" tonight, we go to rio. where carnivale is in full
